The eagerly anticipated Anderson Collection at Stanford University will open to the public on September 21, 2014. Admission is free but timed tickets are required for weekends. In 2011, the Andersons promised 121 works by 86 artists to Stanford, and the University constructed a permanent building designed by Ennead Architects next to the Cantor Arts Center exclusively for the gift. The Anderson Collection was assembled over the past 50 years by Bay Area locals Harry W. “Hunk” and Mary Margaret “Moo” Anderson, along with their daughter Mary Patricia “Putter” Anderson Pence, and is considered among the world’s most impressive private holdings of 20th Century American Art. It includes 837 works by 203 artists.
